    Congrats. Wear it well and pass it to your son/son-in-law/nephew/best bud's son. It's a thing of beauty. :)

    I like the button feature on the back of the tie.

    Nice Stitch, these were one of the guys I originally spoke to about wholesale shirts around 10 months ago, their stuff is outstanding but as you point out, out of reach for almost all but those "can't resist" purchases.

    you and me both, buddy.


    thanks! i hope to have it for many many years.

    the next gen will have to fight over it, after i hit 120, G-d willing. :)


    me too.

    it doesnt really serve much of a purpose. except maybe that most seven fold ties are stitched closed higher up, to show the fold construction, leaving the folds subject to opening up and not staying still. this button allows you to see the full construction, but also to have the tie fully closed when worn.

    also, its awesome. :)


    thank you, very cool that you knew of these guys. cue fiddler on the roof, "if i were a rich man..."

    ---
    im wearing the tie for the first time today, hope to have an action shot a little later! :slayer:

    Beautiful tie, in stitches! How thick is the 7-fold construction? Would it be too much for summer ties?

    thanks! the fabric is medium thick. hefty enough to feel substantial, but not super thick.

    i dont think the color i got is particularly summery, but he has some really cool light blues that would make an excellent summer tie.

    Thanks for the reply, in stitches. So, say, a linen-blend, 7-fold construction tie won't be too thick for summer in NYC?
